I was just digging through some old posts and thought these would be fun to look back on, given that we are roughly in the same stage of the election cycle three years on.

Not even $5m was enough to get people to betray their country and fellow Kiwis to help out Kim.  

There never was any legal action against Slater & co (who are co?).   For the record, I have nothing to do with Kim Dotcom’s downfall either.

Yeah.  For a bit.   But here we are Ruth.   And I suspect we’ll still be here when you are no longer an MP.

That person in Auckland is still driving around wishing it was so.   It’s not likely at this stage that they will have to replace it in September with NATGON.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
